Access and participation plan

Our access and participation plan (formerly known as access agreement) is a document setting out how we intend to safeguard and promote fair access to higher education through our outreach work, financial support etc. It also includes targets and milestones which we set for ourselves.

Any university or college that wants to charge tuition fees for home/EU undergraduates, and/or postgraduates on PGCE or initial teacher training courses, above the basic level must have an access agreement approved by the Director of Fair Access at the Office for Students (OfS). This applies to full-time students and part-time students studying at an intensity of at least 25 per cent of a full-time course.

You can find our current and previous access agreements below. Simply select the academic year you are interested in.
